The small houses lie on both banks of the Bojanka river, which takes its source not far away from the village. Here, tourists may find calmness and quietness, getting into the far-off days of the past.

According to the legend, the village was founded by a noble-woman, whose name was Bojana, who found shelter with her nine sons in the mountains after Veliko Turnovo was conquered by the Turks in 1393.

Stock-breeding, different handicrafts and trade were the basic means of livelihood in the village. During the Bulgarian Renaissance it changed its architectural appearance. Đ¢oday, it is widely- known that Bojentzi is the birthplace of a great number of distinguished Bulgarian writers, artists, architects and scientists.
